Dribble Erdogan: Handshake with Egypt's Sisi-Emir Qatar Mediator

For the first time in 9 years, the president of Turkey, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, met with his Egyptian counterpart, Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, in Doha, Qatar, where they are both in the context of the opening of the 2022 World Cup.

The photo with the two leaders greeting each other is typical:

Shaking hands, smiles as if nothing had happened before and nothing was said between them and above them the “best man” the emir of Qatar, the moral author for the “secret meeting” between Turkey and Egypt.

The Turkish president, using the emir of Qatar as an intermediary, approaches difficult countries, countries that Greece has partnered with, in order to weave his own alliances in the region, making his opponents, however, attribute to him historical movements, which cost its prestige country.

The Turkish president had done the same earlier this year with Saudi Arabia. Mediated again by the emir of Qatar, he tried to meet the prince of Saudi Arabia, an appointment he nevertheless succeeded in after months.

Erdoğan swing

The “photo of reconciliation” became one of the first topics in the Turkish media, with the opposition however not at all “grateful” to the Turkish president for this new shift, which he showed to be making, and reminding him in the most poignant way that there who made the sign of Rabia and the Muslim Brotherhood (Sisi’s opponents) for years in his public appearances, where he had gotten up and left an official table in America to avoid sitting with the “coup-murderer Sisi”, as he called him , where he was saying that he would never admit to meeting him, nor would he ever shake his hand, now comes this photo, which upsets even Erdogan himself… Or rather the old Erdogan…
